Christmas Bird Count
December, 2013
The 2013 version of the annual Melrose Christmas Bird Count was conducted on December 19th, covered 176 square miles, by seven groups including 35 participants. With the increase in counters (and the expertise) a significant increase in numbers of species was recorded (from 98 in 2012 to 117 in 2013). At the end of the day long survey, participants congregated at Betty's Pizza in Melrose to tally the results, to share stories of the day's birding highlights, and of course feast on the local cuisine. Bird highlights include a Peregrine Falcon, Henslow's Sparrows, a least Bittern, a Laughing Gull as well as Grasshopper and Vesper Sparrows.
